Orange Glazed Salmon Recipe

This dish is the perfect pick-me-up during colder months when you may start to feel a little “winter blues.” Ready in under 30 minutes, it combines all the classic flavors paired with salmon together in one dish.

The brightness of the orange and lightness of the salmon will bring you back to the warmer days. And if you’re experiencing summer right now, then this recipe is just as perfect to compliment the heat-filled ones.

Orange Glazed Salmon

Make sure you’re not missing out on all the beneficial nutrients salmon has to offer by eating wild-caught fish rather than farmed. For example, salmon is a great source of vitamin D, perfect for those winter months when sunlight is short-lived.

The ingredient list is minimal, making it a great go-to recipe to whip up when you’re low on pantry items. Easily serve this with a medley of vegetables like Cauliflower with Lime and Cilantro or Grilled Zucchini and Leeks with an Herb Dressing to keep the meal light and refreshing.
